Planning and Personal Training
I CAN DO THIS
I CAN DO THIS
I CAN DO THIS
...this is the chant I have on repeat right now.
Lose 30 lbs by February (my birthday trip to San Diego, where there will be a swimsuit)
That is roughly 15 weeks from now. 2 l... Read more
Weird depression day
I had one of those scary days yesterday that reminds me where I've been and where I do not want to be ever again. I just felt... blah. Emotionless. Numb.
My boyfriend asked me 57 times what was wrong, did I want a root beer, did I want to g... Read more
Reinvigorating through planning!
OK. I need a goal to work for! I am sooooo lazy right now. I can't seem to get my sleeping going, and thus my exercise is sucking, thus I am eating a bunch of crap. That said, I am still wearing my fitbit and keeping track of steps, and I have b... Read more
I will not be derailed!
Me and sleep do not always get along.
Last week we had a pretty bad falling out, and I just barely slept the entire week. Why? Heat wave? Kittens in the bed? Fan on or fan off? All of these reasons added up to a perfect storm of insomnia. A... Read more
This Dang Plateau!
I'm not sure you can call it a plateau, but I'm not sure you can't.
In all, I've lost over 150 lbs and also gained like 200. Which should be equally impressive! Bring on the pasta and garlic bread! But what I'm getting at, is that I should ... Read more
Beach vacation = so much walking!
I have never walked so much in my life I don't believe.
Now, granted, I did my long workout on Friday morning before we left because I didn't think I'd get enough mileage over the weekend. Boy, was I pretty wrong!
My fitbit totals wer... Read more
a pic reminder - and a box of ice cream bars if I don't lose weight soon
I was looking back through old blogs, and I found a before/during picture of myself at 55 lbs lost. I'm now at around 70 lbs lost:
It freaks me out because I look so ... Read more
Popular Blog Trophy?! Wow!
WOW! Thank you everyone! I have been on SP since 2006 and as far as I can remember, I have never, ever, had a Popular Blog Post! I feel so totally honored. The love and support I've gotten from my SP family has gotten me through some tough times... Read more
the timeline of how SP fixed my day
Today was like a whirlwind of emotions. I'll just give you the timeline play by play.
8am - I'm awake. It's painful. It's already hot in my bedroom. My heart wants to go out and run, and my body does NOT.
8am - 9:45am I try to convinc... Read more
c25k week 2 - I must gush
My friends and family are getting sick of me hearing how great I feel at the end of every workout, and I can only gush to Facebook so much before someone wants to punch me in the face. So you guys get to hear it!
Today was probably the best... Read more
C25k day 3! Blocking out the bad messages.
Oh wow I'm tired. My guy moved in with me this weekend and according to my fitbit I got over 10k steps a day. We both took Monday off, supposedly to rest, but it's 5:30pm and we're not even done for the day yet. UGH. But I keep thinking about al... Read more
hey fat girl running: we've got this!
OK today was not as easy. First of all, it's raining. I ran anyway. When I became a runner last time, I totally did all my training on a treadmill, so this outside thing is a whole new experience. But what I learned last time is that when race t... Read more
getting back into things!
OK it's day 3 of being back, and I'm drinking all that freaking water I was told to drink. It's getting easier! I'm sore and tired today. I am kind of glad I didn't have to run this morning, but I might try to do a light workout tonight. I worke... Read more
The process, not the product
C25K DAY 1 COMPLETE!
One foot in front of the other - I'm back in! I am looking to become a runner again, even at my very very slow pace that honestly looks way more like walking than running. But one of my very wise running friends told me... Read more
LET'S DO THIS
Oh hello SP!
I'm back at it! I'm starting a couch to 5k program tomorrow to try and get motivated to run again. I'm also loitering in SP back alleys and team corners. If you see me, ask me when the last time I ran is, or if I would like a ... Read more
